Patient Comments (3)
in East Berlin, PA |
Very argumentative in follow ups after cataracts removed. I had the bifocal lens put in both eyes and have had a good result except for the night driving because of "halos" . That doesn't adequately describe the impact of headlights on your vision. It us more like fractured light. Dr Armesto constantly challenges me when I comment about it and at first told me to just ignore it. Now he says it can't be do because my eyes are so good. Argumentative and disrespectful over the years

Dr Armesto removed a Pterygium from my left eye,prior to this I had a difficult time reading penciled numbers in my checkbook,never adjusted to bifocals . Since the removal I am now able to watch TV,read with my bifocals and see many things clearly that were not clear for several years. It is just a wonderful thing to have clear sight I cannot praise his skills enough.
